Endowment

An endowment at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania is a designated fund that is invested to produce income to make possible the donor’s wishes. Only income from the fund is used while the principal of the account is held in perpetuity. For the interest from an endowment to make a financial impact, there must be a significant amount of money in the endowment fund. This can be paid over a period of years or as one lump sum. You may wish to create an endowment in your name or in the name of someone important to you.
